I never thought this day would come, when I could post to this site to declare to the world that I passed SCJP2.
I relied on Mughal and Rasmussen's book, almost exclusively. It is available from Amazon at
http://www.amazon.com/exec/obidos/ASIN/0201596148/qid=998491366/br=1-3/ref=br_lf_b/002-4039824-5860041

Then, for the last 6 weeks I have relied on JQ+ for revision and mock exams. I would recommend it highly. It is carefully planned and prepared. It is available from
www.enthuware.com/jqplus

It has the advantage that one of it's authors, Paul Anil, visits this site frequently and answers questions
I also did Marcus's exams, which are very good, and have the advantage of being free. Marcus also visits this site, and I found him very prompt about replying to questions and keeping in touch. Thanks Marcus for all your help, it's much appreciated.
Finally I visited this excellent site every day where I met like minded people, and got a lot of encouragement.

Thanks Leena
I didn't even know there was a cricketer called Brian Murphy! Is he good? So I'm not related obviously.
The first 7 questions were on threads, imagine the fright that gave me! I got about 2 or 3 on Inner classes, and I must've got 5 on io (because I got 60%). The questions were fairly difficult, but very clearly written.
Best wishes
Siobh�n
I don't know what I'll do next, any ideas? I suppose the Developers exam is the next logical step.

Hi (Brian) Murphy
Well though he is not a cricket genious,at times he is a very handy player.Since u have not heard of him,i guess, u r not a cricket fan.
Anyway,thanx 4 ur reply.I guess jsp,ejb,wap... are in demand i suppose.Though i am not the right person 2 guide u i guess ,getting in touch with these will help.It also depends on what ur company would like u 2 do.
just expressed my views(don't know if it helps),
all the best in whatever u do,
leena

Thanks Leena
I have now looked up Brian Murphy in the internet, and I know a lot more about him.
EJB sounds like a good idea, I think that's what my company would like.
Best wishes

Congratulations Siobhan
The Component exam is fairly new. Not sure how many SCJD's have taken it yet. You may want to post in Componet and Developer forums and ask.

I think asking one Murphy about another is about like trying to find Mr. Patil in Delhi or the Nguyen family in Hanoi.
Go maire t�! (Congrats!)
